A five-year-old in London was fined $194 for selling cups of lemonade. The fine upset the little girl. She thought she had done something wrong. Her father, Andre Spicer, said his daughter set up her stall on a street near her home. She wanted to sell her lemonade to people who were going to a music festival. Mr Spicer said his daughter burst into tears. She said: "I've done a bad thing". Spicer said his daughter was very excited by the idea of selling her lemonade. He said: "She just wanted to put a smile on people's faces. She was really proud of herself."

Mr Spicer explained why his daughter cried. He said after she started selling her lemonade, four government officers walked over to the stall. He thought that they would ask them to pack up and go home, but they filmed them on a camera and read them something from a paper about not having a trading licence. His daughter said: "Daddy, Daddy, I've done a bad thing." The officers then fined Spicer and his daughter. The local government spokesman apologised to the little girl and said: "The fine will be cancelled immediately."
